Jointly with its Dutch partners RailRelease and NEA, Railistics has analysed the costs of European rail freight traffic in seven European countries: Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and France. The costs have been determined for three corridors:

  • Rotterdam - Busto Arsizio
  • Antwerp - Vienna
  • Cologne - Lyon

The cost calculations feature all relevant components such as rolling stock (locomotive and wagons), train path, traction energy as well as administrative and staff costs.
